This question is related to Compiling documents online.

I store my LaTeX documents in a git repository on GitHub. Is there a web service which offers a post-commit hook for GitHub which automatically fetches my document and compiles it?

For example, ReadTheDocs provides compilation for documentation of Python projects stored in GitHub repositories; the documentation is fetched and compiled after each commit to the repository.

This is almost what I'm looking for, but there are some issues. 1) It's missing a GitHub post-commit hook for automatic compilation and publishing of compiled documents. 2) (A related issue) The /compile URL seems to respond to GET requests instead of POST requests. 3) There is no way of specifying external LaTeX packages to be automatically downloaded from CTAN. (Necessary because it is bad style to store a copy of all necessary LaTeX packages in my Git repository.) –  argentpepper Jul 24 at 17:59
    
Also, if this is a service that you created yourself, you should really disclose this fact: meta.stackexchange.com/q/15787 –  argentpepper Jul 24 at 18:00

You'd need to self-host it (note security warnings).

Not exactly the answer you want, I guess (and to finish this question):

Have a closer look to ScribTeX. On the website you can read: "Access to your project's git repository" as mentioned in your cited question compiling documents online (see answer of Sharpie).

I do not know other web services offering what you are searching for.
